These celebrity pets are not only furry companions to stars like Taylor Swift and Megan Thee Stallion, but also pretty famous themselves with large followings on social media.
Ask any pet owner, and they’re likely to say their pet is a star in their eyes. However, some furry companions are a lot more famous than most thanks to their celebrity parents. Though let’s give credit where it’s due, these fur babies are adorable in their own right and deserve all the love they get from their owners and the general public.
From comical kitties to shy whippets, below are six celebrity pets that are famous like their owners:
Choupette Lagerfeld: Karl Lagerfeld’s Burmese Cat
Choupette is the white Burmese cat of late designer, Karl Lagerfeld. The fashion visionary adored his feline friend, so much so that he often brought her to fashion events as a plus one, according to Harper’s Bazaar.
Indeed, Choupette has hung out with all kinds of celebrities thanks to her glamorous upbringing. She’s even been a cover star for magazines, has her own makeup line, and memoir. The feline is also supposed to be one of the richest cats in the world, as outlets reported she would be inheriting a large sum of Lagerfeld’s fortune.
Now at 11 years old, Choupette is still living the life in Paris under the care of Lagerfeld’s former housekeeper, Françoise Caçot. Her Instagram account, @choupetteofficiel, is still active with 262,000 followers.
Foe Thee Frenchie: Megan Thee Stallion’s French Bulldog
You’ve heard of rapper and singer extraordinaire Megan Thee Stallion, but have you heard of Foe Thee Frenchie? Fans of the musician certainly have, as the French bulldog’s official Instagram account boasts a following of 539,000.
On average, his posts get tens of thousands of likes, and it’s no surprise. The gray-colored pooch is photographed with the silliest expressions and coolest outfits. He’s also starred in The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and has his own Snapchat series called Off Thee Leash, as per People. It’s clear that he was built for stardom just as much as his owner.
Nugget Perry: Katy Perry’s Micro Teacup Poodle
Nugget is the cutest model on the block, but she’s no human. Meet Katy Perry’s adorable micro teacup poodle who’s not only stolen Perry’s heart, but her fans’ hearts as well. The tiny pooch makes everything she wears look cute—yes, even the silly Dumbo costume her human mother had her wear.
The poodle’s 37,900 followers on Instagram should be enough indication of her appeal. If you’ve seen Perry’s music video for “Small Talk,” you’ve likely spotted the pup in a mint-green bow that matches the singer’s dress.
Meredith Grey, Olivia Benson, and Benjamin Button: Taylor Swift’s Cats
Taylor Swift’s cats don’t have Instagram accounts of their own (they rightfully value their privacy), but they belong on this list because who doesn’t know Meredith, Olivia, and Benjamin? The famous popstar has dedicated many posts to her beloved felines. In fact, one of Swift’s Scottish folds, Olivia Benson, is reportedly the third-richest cat in the world with a net worth of $97 million.
Swift’s posts about her cats have gained more likes and views than some people can dream of within their lifetime. Benjamin Button even starred in the singer’s music video for “ME!” A simple picture of Olivia Benson in a cardboard box, posted in December 2020, gained more than 2 billion likes—yes, you heard it right. Two. Billion. Talk about an im-purr-sive achievement.
Finn: Amanda Seyfried’s Rescue Dog
Actress Amanda Seyfried’s bestest friend, Finn, is also quite the star. The Mamma Mia! star told People that the pup “completely changed” her life and helped her find her solitude and independence.
She started an Instagram account for her fur baby, and it’s filled with pictures of him just smiling and being a, well, happy dog. Which in itself is a touching life for any rescue dog. His posts have thousands of likes, while the account itself has 73,800 followers.
Normie and Bambi Jenner: Kylie Jenner’s Whippets
Kylie Jenner’s whippets may be petite, but their stardom sure isn’t. The pair have an Instagram account with 330,000 followers. Jenner clearly loves her pooches, as she reportedly skipped the 2016 American Music Awards when Normie and Bambi had puppies, according to US Weekly.
The pups certainly seem to be living a lavish lifestyle, as they’re pictured chilling with their human mom and resting in luxe beds with special sweaters.
